Ecuador reached on 2nd of August 2017 a significant landmark with the publication of the Technical Report on the technical analysis of the REDD+ results for the period 2009-2014 (http://unfccc.int/resource/docs/2016/tatr/ecu.pdf). This important result stems from a 5 year long technical process led by the Ministry of Environment (MAE). These results are an impressive demonstration of the importance of a consistent process driven by the country itself, with clear decision making roles, based on solid scientific and technical basis, and with the involvement and participation of different stakeholders. 

With these efforts, Ecuador is one of the first countries that have completed the process and have its Technical Annex successfully analyzed by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), enabling the country to receive results-based payments for REDD+.

FAO, in the framework of the UN-REDD Programme, and through other efforts such as the System for Earth Observation Data Access, Processing and Analysis for Land Monitoring (SEPAL), has been supporting this process from the very beginning and is proud to be able to carry on the work and collaboration in 2017 on the development of the Ecuador’s National Determined Contributions (NDC); FAO looks forward for a continued cooperation for technical support in the implementation of REDD+ and NDC through different modality and initiatives.

Keep an eye out for further news and a webinar that will be organized in the fall as an opportunity to share experiences and lessons learned from this important achievement by Ecuador.
